Any way to use Siri on the Mac to call a KM macro?

Any way to use Siri on the Mac to call a KM macro? I searched for Siri in the Wiki and didn't find any entries. Thanks.

I believe @Sleepy has experience of this. Search for his posts here in the forum.

thank you for the fast reply! His comments were on using Dictation. I was wondering if we could use Hey Siri, Macro A , and have KM execute Macro A on the mac.

Sorry - my bad. Have you searched the KM forum for “Siri macro”?

Yes, only topic is from 2018. Monterey comes with the Shortcuts app now, and I thought there was a cleaner interface between it and KM

Maybe someone who can actually help you will chime in!

I think I posted how to do this 8 days ago. It's a small detail in the middle of the post on voice triggers. You can get Shortcuts to activate KM macros using a certain shortcuts action which is explained in the post...

However my post also implies that there might be other ways to send signals. I suppose I can try to remember if there are simpler ways.

I think @appleianer also has posted some stuff related to using Siri.

I've been using Talon http://talonvoice.com to use voice commands and trigger KM macros too. Recommended, and less CPU intensive than macOS Dictation

Hi @thankful_dude you can trigger KM macros as well as Siri shortcuts via macOS voice commands. "Hey Siri" does not work there.

For the KM macros please use the URL...

There are 2 variants for the execution of Siri shortcuts. Once "run" and then "open".
If there are spaces in the name of your Siri shortcut you have to set "%20".

Run:

shortcuts://run-shortcut?name=xxxxxxxx
shortcuts://run-shortcut?name=xxxxxx%20xxxxxxx

Open:

shortcuts://open-shortcut?name=xxxxxxxx
shortcuts://open-shortcut?name=xxxxxx%20xxxxxx

To set up the voice command here is a
